Instructions

yields 2 cups

Rinse and cut the vegetables into small bite-size shapes. Arrange in bento boxes or a divided dish that can be used as a centerpiece. To prepare the crudités in advance, place the cut vegetables in zip-lock bags or an airtight container, cover with moist paper towels and store in the refrigerator for up to two days.

In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, sour cream, herbs, cumin, lemon juice, lemon zest, and capers in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Prior to serving, stir dip, transfer to a decorative bowl and garnish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
